Rarely-seen royal wedding photos: Princess Eugenie, Sarah Ferguson & more intimate moments

> Princess Eugenie, Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, Princess Diana and more royal brides have all enjoyed intimate moments on their wedding days – see rarely-seen photos.

From Meghan Markle sharing a private moment with her mother Doria Ragland to Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew leaving for their honeymoon, there are a lot of sweet moments at a royal wedding that can easily be missed – even when they have millions of eyes watching the memorable events!

Aside from the official photos, we did some digging to find the intimate, behind-the-scenes snaps from the likes of the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Do you remember their private rehearsal dinners and pre-ceremony nerves?

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank

 

On Father’s Day 2019, Princess Eugenie paid tribute to her father, Prince Andrew, with a behind-the-scenes photo from her wedding day. It shows the moment Prince Andrew saw Princess Eugenie in her wedding dress, before he walked her down the aisle at St James’s Palace to her now husband Jack Brooksbank.

The Queen’s granddaughter also marked her third wedding anniversary by posting an unseen snap from the couple’s first dance at their evening wedding reception. Dressed in a blush pink Zac Posen gown, the bride beamed directly at the camera as she embraced her husband.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated their first wedding anniversary on 19 May 2019, Sussex Royal shared a compilation of photos in a video. The couple are seen signing their marriage license, Harry heads down the stairs once he is ready to head off to the venue, and Meghan shares an intimate moment with her mother Doria Ragland.

Princess Diana married Prince Charles at St Paul’s Cathedral in 1981, before heading to Buckingham Palace for the wedding reception. Diana was photographed behind-the-scenes as she reassured her five-year-old bridesmaid Clementine Hambro not to be nervous, with the Queen standing close by.
